USB on Win95

Has anyone managed to get the USB port on the 850Z to communicate with a Windows 95 computer that supports USB? My computer uses Win95 and I would hate to have to get Windows 98 to utilize the USB port.

Re: USB on Win95

Sorry, but I doubt it will work. One of the things about Win98 is that it has MUCH better USB support. All in all I think there are about 50 or so updates to the USB support in Win98 and they cannot be patched into any version of Win95.

Re: USB on Win95

I believe the absolute minimum is Windows 95 OSR2.1. This was only available on new computers, so if you purchased Windows 95 from a store you don't have it. To check, go to CONTROL PANEL ~ SYSTEM and check the version number on the first screen. If it has no letter next to it or it has an "A" you can't use USB.

Re: USB on Win95

It does appear from Epson's own spec sheet on their website that Windows 98 is a minimum requirement for their USB interface.

I cannot get ther pictures off of my camera and onto my computer


The important thing is, did you install the CD FIRST, and then connect the camera? If you did it in the reverse order, the drivers for the camera will be loaded wrong and need to be removed and reinstalled.
Removing a driver:
If you have done the faux pas above, all the installs in the world will not fix it. You MUST remove the USB driver. Use Device Manager. In XP, this is found by right clicking my computer and selecting properties. In properties select the hardware tab and choose 'Device Manager'.

Stop here. If you have no idea what I wrote, review 'Device Manager' on the Windows Website or ask a KNOWLEDGABLE friend for help. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310123.

Now, select the USB device, while it is plugged in to the USB port, and right click. Select 'Uninstall'. Remove your USB device when device manager is done.

Close Device manager and all the other windows. Start your USB install from scratch, without the USB plugged in untill the install asks or completes.
I have ALWAYS had successful installs with this method.

Canon 450D is not being recognised by my computer (I run xp 32-bit). When I turn on the camera, windows comes up with a "install new hardware" option. I have installed the EOS utility etc. but still the...


Both the Canon XT 350D and the XTi 400D are recognized by any PC with XP windows operative system. It seems you have to check your USB port or USB cable used to connect your cameras to the PC. Sometimes, the PC does not recognize a specific device connected to an USB port. Yopu can get into the System -device manager screen, and uninstall the USB port, and run the utility to recognize changes in the device manager. This will install the USB port driver again, and if it is a software issue the reason of the problem, then it will be fixed.

Also, you can check your cameras and USB cable in a different PC so you can confirm if they both work has should be.

Make sure the camera is on and STORAGE is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have STORAGE highlighted and select OK on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. Check the System Tray (lower right corner beside the PC time) for Safely Remove Hardware. When you click on it, it should read "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device Drive ?:" If you dont see that, then check the Device Manager to see if the camera is recognized as USB Mass Storage Device. The camera uses the driver usbstor.

By connecting the camera to a computer with the provided USB cable,
images on a card can be transferred to the computer. Some OS's (operating
systems) may need a special setup when connecting to the camera for the
first time. Follow the chart below. For details on the procedures in the chart,
refer to the “Reference Manual” on the CD-ROM and the “Software
Installation Guide” (included in the CD-ROM package).
Identifying the OS
Windows 98/98 SE
(Second Edition)
Windows 2000
Professional/Me/XP
Mac OS 9.0 - 9.1/OS X
*OS 8.6: See below.

Connecting the camera to a computer using the provided USB cable
Installing the USB
driver for Windows 98
Confirming the computer recognizes the camera
Downloading image files
Disconnecting the USB cable
 

Even if your computer has a USB connector, data transfer may not function correctly if
you are using one of the operating systems listed below or if you have an add-on USB
connector (extension card, etc.).
● Windows 95/NT 4.0
● Windows 98/98 SE upgrade from Windows 95
● Mac OS 8.6 or lower (except Mac OS 8.6 equipped with USB MASS Storage support
1.3.5 installed at the factory)
● Data transfer is not guaranteed on a home-built PC system or PCs with no factory
installed OS.
You can view images using: graphics applications that support the JPEG
file format (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.); Internet browsers (Netscape
Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.); CAMEDIA Master
software; or other software. For details on using commercial graphics
applications, refer to their instruction manuals.

ERROR: code 28 -- Windows XP & USB 2.0


I'm unable to connect my western digital hard drive to my Windows XP computer via the USB port. When I check the USB 2.0 Controller in the Device Manager, there is a yellow exclamation mark (!) next to it. When I check on the status of the USB 2.0 Controller, the following message appears:

The drivers for this device are not installed (code 28).

What do I do now?

No usb port found


If you can't find such on your machine, then it's either disabled, the BIOS is out of date, the OS doesn't support your USB (Examples abound!) or other. I cut my time loss by adding an USB PCI card.

If you really want to keep on using this old 640x480 camera, why not look for some cheap old notebook with Win95 installed?

I don't think Win95 supports USB; you'd ahvet o upgrade to Win98 or WinME, or get a card reader.

Windows NT operating system


Your Kodak EasyShare digital camera will not work directly with a computer running the Windows NT operating system. The Windows NT operating system does not support the universal serial bus (USB) standard, and all Kodak EasyShare digital cameras communicate using the USB standard. However, you can transfer pictures from your camera to your computer by purchasing a parallel port card reader. Take the memory card with pictures from the camera, insert the memory card into the card reader, and then copy the pictures from the memory card to the computer.
